    Same exact company, same hardware inside, only a different operating system and buttons. Yeah, it is designed for the fresh water angler and you deal with different tech support people, but for half the price of the 16'' Evo3, might be well worth it. Maybe buy two?

    That was my thought. Wasn't sure if there was a reason behind the price differance.

    Did you purchase? Just found this as my plotter just crapped out on me. Contemplating between the 2 similar systems too.
